On Saturday, February 11, we will be back for our monthly residency at Jovita’s for another Austin Vida showcase featuring some of Austin’s best Latin music. The iconic South Austin venue has been home to many great Latin music showcases throughout the years. Help us continue that tradition as we bring you two of the best new up-and-coming bands in the world of Urban Tejano, Son de Rey and Cinco Doce.
Austin based Urban Tejano group Son de Rey open the showcase. Their music is rooted in traditional Tejano music while blending elements of cumbia, soul and salsa. Lead by their dynamic frontman Luis Miguel Ramírez, Son de Rey represent the new wave in Urban Tejano. Son de Rey perform at 9:30pm.
